We have done most of the simple things to reduce the environmental impact of holidays at Hargate Hall now. Such as introducing recycling, putting in new efficient boilers, adding more insulation, using local suppliers etc. We are now about to embark on using more renewable energy sources. As we work on the refurbished party room we are putting in hot water, underfloor heating and space heating all powered by a wood pellet boiler.
Initially we will be buying in the pellets but hope to be able to make our own in the near future.
This will also mean that in the event of a power cut (but with a small generator) we will still have an area that can be used comfortably
